The Physics programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt represents a unique examination that is indispensable in the education of physicists. 


Physics is the science of the structure, characteristics, conditions and motion of matter and energy, as well as the underlying interactions and forces and the resulting dimensions. As such, it is the material basis of all natural sciences and all technical disciplines. It is a science that is based on activity, as it requires experimental and theoretical implementation, utilisation and further development of its content and methods.

It is also a quantitative science, as the aim of physics is the quantitatively reproducible description of processes in nature and the production of quantitative correlations between different phenomena and classes of phenomena. In order to achieve these targets, physics relies to a large extent on mathematical methods.

The Physics programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt is achieved to a certain extent in the Bachelor’s programme by students selecting optional compulsory modules from different fields of physics, and via the Bachelor’s thesis that represents a separate introduction into the practical work in one of the research areas of the department.
